10 MINUTE BRIOCHE: THE EASY RECIPE
The 10-minute brioche is a brioche made with flour, sugar, yeast, salt, orange blossom water, butter, egg and sugar.
The current brioche was born in Normandy in the 16th century. Brioche dough dates back to the Middle Ages. The term “brioche” comes from the verb “brier”, an old form of “grinding” in Norman, then used in the sense of “kneading the dough with a wooden roller”, and which is also found in “brie bread”, Norman specialty. Among the towns once very famous for the quality of their brioches, Gisors and Gournay, probably due to the excellence of the butter in this region.
